Comments on HT System: This is the primary AV system. Excellent display quality for movies, and also lots of impact from the dual subwoofers. For musical listening the system is a little forward and doesn't soundstage like it should because of the television and placement constraints. Would eventually like to try a pair of Theil 2.2, get the TV ISF calibrated, and switch to a seperate amplifier for the main speakers.
Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: My main interests are electronics, music, and outdoor activities. I\'m soon to be a college freshman, which unfortantly means no more stereo. The HT system is owned by my dad, the Polk Audio setup by myself.
